You will probably want to fly into either Midland-Odessa or El Paso; either one is about 165 miles from Carlsbad. You can fly Southwest from Birmingham to either Midland-Odessa or El Paso.

I would assume Huntsville airport is more convenient, as Birmingham is over 100 miles away. From Huntsville you can fly Continental, American, Delta or United to El Paso and the same airlines, except Delta, to Midland-Odessa. All are connecting flights.

Carlsbad does have a small airport with commercial flights but it is only served by New Mexico Airlines to and from Albuquerque, Alamogordo and El Paso but as an Essential Air Service airport, fares tend to be pretty hefty.
